Lot 534: TLS, one page, 8 x 10, Faber and Faber Ltd. Publishers letterhead, September 7, 1948. Letter to English poet Norman Nicholson, in full: "I have just read the copy of your new play which Martin has given me to read. Of course we shall want to publish it when it is ready—I ought, strictly speaking, to say that I shall recommend it strongly to my Board and see no reason why they should not agree at once. I've read the carbon of Martin's letter to you of August 23rd and agree with his criticism. It may give you a little trouble, but I am sure you will be able to satisfy him." Eliot makes a pair of handwritten emendations to the text. In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope.
